Following on from the release of their self-titled debut back in 2015, London’s Josephine Vander Gucht and Anthony West, better known as Oh Wonder, are back!
They’ve just shared new single ‘Ultralife,’ which might well be the pair’s most confident release to date. It’s celebratory in tone, and beefs up their synthpop sound to anthemic levels without losing the knack for poetic yet still down-to-earth songwriting that Josephine and Anthony founded the project on.
In addition, the pair are set to head out on a huge US tour in the lead-up to their appearance at Coachella next month. They’ll then be back in Europe for a number of festival dates, including at Reading & Leeds, Pukkelpop and Sziget.
